there's a lot of truth to what you're saying. society condones animals to be killed for a fur coat or a happy meal. they are treated like throwaway beings to be killed for a whim. people that sincerely think of themselves as animal lovers eat steaks. so is what mr. vick did a great leap beyond that? i'd say it's a fair question.Originally Posted by Spang
Michael Vick's dog fighting--which I don't condone, by the way--pales in comparison to the torture and slaughter of factory- and free-range-farmed animals. Omnivores contribute to this torture and slaughter of more than 10 billion animals annually. They may not be physically torturing and slaughtering these animals, but they are paying someone to do it for them. If we're treating all animals as equals, is it fair to say that our omnivorous friends and family are horrible people? Pieces of **** even?
